Analog clocks removed from classrooms because kids can’t read them…

Schools in the United Kingdom are beginning to remove analog clocks from the classroom — because students are complaining that they can’t read them, reports say.

Officials have begun replacing the traditional clocks with digital ones as children have been unable to tell the correct time on analog clocks, The Telegraph reports.

“The current generation aren’t as good at reading the traditional clock face as older generations,” Malcolm Trobe, deputy general secretary at the Association of School and College Leaders in England, told the publication. “Nearly everything they’ve got is digital so youngsters are just exposed to time being given digitally everywhere.”

According to a report from the Times Educational Supplement, — a weekly newspaper for teachers in the U.K. — one educator said during a conference in London that many high schoolers were only able to tell the time on digital devices.

“It is amazing the number of students I am coming across in year 10, 11 and in sixth form who do not know how to tell the time,” she began. “We live in a world where everything is digital. We are moving towards a digital age and they do not necessarily have analogue watches anymore and they have mobile phones with the time on.”

Teachers in the U.K. wrote about the situation on social media, with a “Mrs Keenan” tweeting that digital clocks had been installed in an exam hall. Another, Nicola Towle, wrote in a tweet, according to the BBC: “Our school has replaced the analogue clock with a digital one in the hall for exams because pupils couldn’t use it to tell the time.”

The situation isn’t only present in the U.K., though.

Thousands of Muslims removed from Lesbos after clashing with Locals


So here’s how it works. First they invaded that island in the thousands then as soon as they reached a safe number of equal to the local population or even higher, BOOM! They attack the locals and fight with them over domination. This is exactly what is awaiting all of us anywhere in Europe. Stand up and oppose mass immigration and voice your preference to have all of these people deported!

Greek police have been forced to remove several thousand Afghan invaders who had taken over the central square in Mitilini, the capital of the island of Lesbos, following physical clashes between locals and the fake refugees earlier this week.

The Afghans, who had been living at the nearby Moria “refugee” camp ever since invading Greece in an attempt to force their way into Europe (an attempt which has been halted by the Hungarians building a border fence), occupied Sapphos Square in Mitilini nearly two weeks ago in order to “protest” at the conditions in the Moira camp.

After five days of provocations—during which the locals could not even get onto the square, with the Afghans littering, defecating and otherwise harassing the town’s center—tensions reached boiling point last Sunday and a large crowd gathered with the intention of forcing the invaders out.

When the invaders—supported by a handful of far leftists—refused to move, scuffles broke out between the Greeks and the Afghans, and the violence quickly escalated as the two groups began throwing bottles, firecrackers, cobblestones, and flares at each other.

Police reinforcements were rushed to the square to protect the invaders, and formed a line between the locals and the invaders.

Fighting however continued and spread to the waterfront area, and eventually police were forced to use teargas to break up the combatants.

At least 28 invaders were treated at the local hospital for injuries sustained in the clashes.

Eventually the police decided to forcibly remove the nonwhites off the square and transport them back to the Moira camp. They had to do this one-by-one as the Afghans refused to co-operate.

At least 120 of the Afghans and two leftists were arrested for obstructing the police in the course of their duties, and 28 invaders were treated at the local hospital for injuries sustained in the clashes.

There are over 10,000 nonwhite invaders in Mitilini—which only has a population of 27,000. The invaders are demanding that their bogus “asylum” claims to be filed and that they be allowed to leave the island and continue on their invasion path into Europe.

Signs installed to slow down drivers removed after complaints that they slow down drivers

Example 492 of how Toronto does not understand Vision Zero

Children are being killed or injured in the streets of Toronto, so the City has installed a number of flex-post signs in the middle of the road near school zones to remind people that the speed limit is 40 km/hr (~25 MPH). But according to a report on Global News, the City is removing some of them because there are complaints that they are slowing down traffic on one street where cars drive too fast on a regular basis.

“Our initial assessment indicated that the road had sufficient clearance around the sign, but when cars parked adjacent to the sign, we observed traffic slowing significantly or moving around the sign into oncoming traffic,” city spokesperson Cheryl San Juan said.

Having been on that road, I would suggest that their initial assessment was correct, but Toronto drivers aren’t used to being squeezed, so they slow down, which is kind of the point. But nonetheless, they have “removed two signs due to safety concerns” -even though they were installed due to safety concerns. But as one Reddit contributor noted,

These signs are a joke and will do nothing to “curb pedestrian injuries and fatalities” so long as the City of Toronto refuses to spend money redesigning streets to slow traffic and the Toronto Police refuse to properly enforce rules against distracted and aggressive driving. They’re the perfect example of [Current Mayor John] Tory’s ideas: somewhat better than what a literal crackhead might think up, but not by much.

Sign in LondonSign on Primrose Hill, London/ Lloyd Alter/CC BY 2.0

Other cities, like London, are being more aggressive and are lowering speed limits, putting in bumps and redesigning roads. But in Toronto, it is all just safety theatre. When a few years ago, the Medical Officer of Health Dr. David McKeown recommended that speed limits be reduced to 30Km/hr (20 MPH) on residential streets to save lives back in 2012, then transportation committee head Councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong said:

Doesn’t he have better things to do than interfere in every single department and everybody else’s lives? If he wants to lower speed limits, maybe he should apply for the general manager’s job in the transportation department.

They just don’t get it here.

Instagram fitness model removed from American Airlines flight after 'humiliating' row 

An Instagram fitness model was “humiliated” after being removed from an American Airlines flight following a row with staff.

Jen Selter, who has 11 million followers on Instagram, posted footage of her arguing with a pilot and a flight attendant on the delayed flight from Miami to New York on 27 January.

“I did nothing wrong but got kicked off the plane,” she wrote, adding she had the “worst experience” following a delay which left the aircraft stuck on the runway for two hours.

The 24-year-old claims she and her sister were told to leave the aircraft following a disagreement with a male attendant when she got up to put her coat away and stretch her legs.

She argues that two other passengers had been allowed to go to the bathroom when she stood up, adding she was being sarcastic after responding “yeah” when asked by the attendant,  “Do you want to get kicked off the plane?”

Ms Selter says the attendant told her to sit down and they began arguing resulting in the pilot calling the police who then arrived on board.

“The crew is asking for you guys to be removed off the plane,” the pilot tells them in one clip.

In another video, a police officer tells the sisters: “American Airlines calls the shots. They don’t want you to fly on their plane today.”

Ms Selter told the New York Post: “It was humiliating. They made me feel like a terrible person, and I did nothing wrong.”

A spokesperson for American Airlines said in a statement: “Ms. Selter was asked to leave the aircraft after a disagreement occurred Saturday night at Miami International Airport (MIA).

“American offered her hotel accommodations and transportation, which she declined. She flew on American Sunday morning back to New York (LGA) – arriving around 8:30 a.m. ET yesterday morning.”

Ms Selter has vowed “to never fly American Airlines again”.

How one company removed 1,000,000lb of trash from our waters

We write a lot about interesting startups here at TreeHugger, and not all of them make it to fruition. That’s why—after writing about the very awesome #2MinuteBeachClean—I was delighted to get an email from United By Blue, the green-minded apparel company United By Blue, which Jaymi lauded for removing 82,527 pounds of trash from rivers, streams and beaches back in 2011.

As Warren had noted even earlier, the concept is pretty simple. For every item sold, United By Blue will remove one pound of trash from the environment. What’s important to note here is that we are not talking about simply donating to ocean clean up charities. Instead, the company sees clean up as an integral part of their own operations—dedicating staff time, budget and resources to organizing clean ups themselves, and bringing a community of volunteers along for the ride.

It’s a pretty neat model. And now, with a full e-commerce store selling everything from bison wool beanies to pants and t-shirts and luggage, as well as three brick-and-mortar retail locations, United By Blue has just announced that they have collected over 1,000,000 pounds of trash since their inception. That number was reached by hosting 202 separate clean up events across 27 states, and I have word from their team that there are much, much bigger plans brewing for the year ahead.

I can’t say more at this stage, except watch this space. Given the massive uptick in interest in ocean plastics recently, United By Blue may be a business model whose time has finally come.

So glad to see they made it to maturity.

Suspicious ‘Russian diplomat’ removed from UK House of Commons debate is actually American

UK Parliament


The House of Commons has become the scene of another bizarre incident as Members of Parliament demanded that a suspicious “Russian diplomat” be ejected from the chamber. The man, however, turned out to be American.

Rather fittingly, the spectacle unfolded during a rather poorly attended debate on Russian interference in the Brexit referendum. Labour MPs Ben Bradshaw and Chris Bryant accused the man of being from the Russian embassy and of taking pictures and video from the public gallery, a practice which is not strictly forbidden under the rules of parliament.

“He is from the Russian Embassy. He has been taking pictures,” Bradshaw could be heard saying during the debate. Liberal Democrat MP Tom Brake also tweeted about the incident, saying it “enlivened” proceedings.

Bryant alerted the doorkeepers and the man was removed from the public gallery. However the man’s expulsion was short lived as he returned within minutes after claiming he worked for a think tank, the Daily Mail reports.

The man was in fact American and he could not have taken photos even if he wanted to, the Mail reported. “I work for a think tank in London, my phone is taped up over the camera so I can’t take pictures. I was just here for the day, I didn’t know what was happening,” he said.

A spokesperson for the House of Commons confirmed that the man was not filming the debate: “A guest in the Public Gallery was using his mobile phone but was not filming. His phone was checked by the Doorkeepers and it was confirmed that there was no video footage.”

Town hall in Italy removed Christmas tree to not offend Muslims

Like Sweden and other countries in West Europe, Italy is totally cucked.

The town hall of Bolzano, the capital city of the province of South Tyrol in northern Italy, had a Christmas tree removed so as not to hurt the feelings of Muslims.

Rachele Nenzi reports for Il Giornale that on the evening of December 16, 2017, the National Union of Sports Veterans (Unione Nazionale Veterani dello Sport or UNVS) held an athlete-of-the-year award ceremony in Bolzano’s town hall. The ceremony was hosted by Matteo Salvini, leader of Lega Nord, the Northern League political party.

After the ceremony ended, UNVS put everything in place and returned the room as they found it, except for some Christmas decorations and a cardboard Christmas tree.

The next morning, UNVS president Alberto Ferrini was awaken by a phone call from the office of the town hall asking him “to remove that tree because at noon that day there would be a meeting of a Muslim association in the hall, and the Christmas tree could offend the sensibilities of those present.”

Reader Chrysostom puts it best:

But it’s okay to offend us Christians. It means they do not fear us, maybe because we are not armed?

Maduro: No Elections Will Be Held unless Sanctions Are Removed

Negotiations between Nicolás Maduro’s regime in Venezuela and the country’s political opposition have reportedly fallen into a “vicious cycle” of threats that isn’t productive for either side. Maduro’s side has expressed an unwillingness to negotiate, even trying to blackmail its way out of international sanctions with threats of eliminating elections altogether.

Minister of Communication and regime spokesman Jorge Rodríguez said there will be no elections in Venezuela if the United States does not lift its sanctions against the country. The elections, which are laid out in the Venezuelan constitution, are scheduled for 2018.

“Venezuela will not have an election, nor will we sign any agreement with the Venezuelan opposition until the gross sanctions that the Venezuelan right-wing leadership requested from the Treasury Department of Donald Trump, from Spanish and Canadian authorities, and from any and all foreign and international entities, are lifted,” Rodriguez said.

It’s an ironic threat given that Maduro originally called the US sanctions a victory and an honor for Venezuela. In fact, Maduro’s new attempt at blackmail shows the sanctions — which were handed down by  the United States, Canada and now the European Union — are starting to work as intended.

The opposition coalition Democratic Unity Roundtable (or MUD, by its Spanish acronym) called for “patience and confidence” with negotiations despite having fallen victim to the regime’s disingenuous interest in advancing discussions about transparent elections and humanitarian aid.

“I understand that there people are anxious to know what is going to happen with each of these issues, but I would recommend patience and confidence in the negotiation team,” Deputy Luis Florido, a MUD spokesmen, said. “Let’s wait until December 15. We hope to have good news by then.”

Julio Borges, President of the disbanded National Assembly, insisted that the opening of a humanitarian food and medicine channel is his primary concern. However, the regime has been clear that there will be no humanitarian aid, let alone free elections.

The regime blames the US for the financial sanctions that prohibit Americans from working the Venezuelan government or with the state-owned oil company PDVSA. These governments have made it clear that sanctions will only be lifted when the rule of law and constitutional democracy are restored.

President Trump has already announced there is no way to reverse the sanctions. Meanwhile, the rest of the international community has the ability to pressure Maduro’s regime further, and ultimately drown it through the seizing of its foreign resources goods as well as by eliminating the visas of top government officials.

Here Is Who Was REMOVED From The JFK Files Released In 2017 (VIDEO)

Next Story

I always say, if you try to see the world through very dirty glasses you will not see things clearly. However, if you clean those glasses, you will see what’s actually going on.

This metaphor applies beautifully to viewing the reality of how our world works. If the mainstream media, history, and the education system are your lenses into the way the world works, your glasses are dirty. If however you are utilizing critical thinking, alternative news outlets and personal research to dig more deeply on how our world actually works, you will have much cleaner glasses – provided you can set aside all political bias’ of course.

Recently the JFK files were released to the public and of course everyone would suspect that the truth about what actually happened that day may come to light in a way like never before.

For those saying ‘No way, they would never let that truth out,’ I hear you. The Deep State probably wouldn’t. But then again how did we get all the leaks about the DNC corruption, the Snowden leaks and the truth about the Clinton’s around election time? Insiders in the US security agencies of course.

So perhaps this time around maybe it was possible that some ‘white hats’ inside these agencies would again reveal some interesting secrets to the people. But it appears it didn’t happen that way.

After 54 years of waiting for these files, not all are being released. This likely means that a person(s) is still living today, that has information related to the death and/or the cover-up of John F. Kennedy, who was killed on November 22, 1963.

Who might that person be? George H. W. Bush. A man coming from one of the most Deep State protected families out there.

[WATCH] If Trainer at Denver Jail Isn’t Removed More Inmates Will Likely Die

Attorney Darold Killmer, corresponding via email, responds like so: “This astonishing testimony, from a trainer at the jail, shows clearly why inmates keep getting killed and maimed at the Denver jail. Mr. Yamaguchi should be first in line to receive the new training required by the Marshall settlement. In the meantime, he should be removed from his job as trainer, or more inmates will likely die.”

Background on the Marshall case can be found in a Denver District Attorney’s Office decision letter explaining why criminal charges weren’t pressed against deputies involved in the incident. According to the document, Marshall was arrested for trespassing on November 7, 2015, after which he was placed in the Denver Detention Center’s 4D pod, described as a “special management unit on the fourth floor.”

Prior to his jailing, Marshall had reportedly refused to take medicine prescribed to fight the effects of schizophrenia, and he’d had six police contacts over a 48-hour period. During 911 calls, he’s said to have been “rambling” and engaged in “ranting.”

On November 11, Marshall was allowed free time out of his cell, but when he “was observed behaving in a strange and erratic manner” and approaching another inmate aggressively, deputies intervened and took him to an area dubbed a “sally port,” with a bench on one side of a long hallway.

It’s at this point that a video of Marshall’s final moments begins. See it here:

The clip shows Marshall slumping to the floor of a Denver jail corridor after being pushed by a deputy in an action that was forceful but not overtly aggressive. The deputies responded by holding Marshall down (even though he didn’t appear to be struggling) before transitioning into an unsuccessful attempt to revive him. An autopsy determined that, in all likelihood, he choked to death on his own vomit.
